Stone and Wood

We believe in everything Stone and Wood stand for and agree that "the way of living around here is the way it should be".

Just like us, the S & W team value the simple things and all share the common goal of brewing a good life for each other, their community and themselves.

Be sure to high five the crew, grab your handcrafted beer and kick back to the live tunes of some of our busking best! (and don't forget to tip the talent)

Stick It Signs

Our hats go off to Drew and Garry who have been sponsors since BBTC's inception. From our 'Blue Girl Barge' to parking signs, stage theming and stickers, these boys are there to produce our masterpieces and work around the clock to make us picture perfect! And all for love!

Don't go anywhere else if you need anything in the way of signage - these boys are the only go to's!

Gold Coast Barges

They barged on in back in 2015 and brought our first ever water stage alive with their country music showdown and they've been back every year since! We've had a floating stage, half-pipe and circus, with a surprise in store for 2018!

A heartfelt thankyou to Greg, Tracy and family for hearing our grand plans and having the same belief that 'anything's possible'!

They'll also be performing again ... circle "The Bridge" on the event program!

Eleven Production Services

For the last four years, champion Dan Aurora has gone above and beyond the call of duty.

Not only has Dan provided our sound equipment and services for the festival, Battle of the Buskers and side street events, he's also road-tripped to Timbuktu and back in search of theming treasures.

Eleven Production Services - the only place to go for all your sound requirements

Allcott Hire

We're powered up this year thanks to Allcott Hire!

Alan has a first hand insight into the high costs involved in organising an event, especially of our scale, having been involved in the operation of many free community events and we're thankful for their contribution.

Prize Sponsors

Airlie Beach Festival of Music

In a huge coup for singer/songwriters, this year we have partnered with Airlie Beach Festival of Music to amp up the already highly coveted "Battle of the Buskers" competition prize.

This year our winner and runner-up will also walk away with an all expenses paid performance slot at the premier Australian event. Prize Package Plus!

If you haven't been, get going! 9, 10, 11, 12 November.

Byron Bay Bluesfest Busking

The winner of our 'Battle of the Buskers' not only walks away with cash and a recording package, they also get granted a free ride ticket straight to the grand final of the prestigious Bluesfest Busking competition!

When we approached organiser Anita Collenbrander, she was delighted to collaborate and we couldn't believe her enthusiasm from the onset! This wonder woman knows all there is to know about busking, so we've also signed her to the judging panel of our Battle!

Their Bluesfest Busking 2018 grommet winners, Neon Inferno are also booked to play on our line-up!

Special Thanks

Greenfest Solutions

Does anyone think of the waste that's accumulated over the two days and who's hard at work behind the scenes cleaning the toilet and bin facilities? It's been Cindy's dad the last two years but this year thanks to Diana Hartung, he can put his feet up and enjoy the show!

Diana will be kitting out our head volunteer Tim and his team with the gear and equipment needed to keep our green clean!
